Prayer Never Fails
“Prayer Never Fails” is a gripping legal drama about an up-and-coming smalltown high school basketball coach, well on his way to a championship caliber season, when he is fired after he prays with one of his players who is in great need. The movie is powerful and, at its essence, epitomizes stepping out on faith, facing failure, staying in prayer, following your calling, and honoring the will of God.
“Prayer Never Fails” is a remarkable film about the power of prevailing prayer. Starring Corbin Bernsen, Clifton Davis, Eric Roberts, and Nick Lashaway, the story focuses on a high school basketball coach named Aiden Paul (Lashaway), who winds up being fired for praying with a student. Before he was let go, he warned the principal who fired him that the principal wasn’t appropriating funds properly. So was the firing more about revenge than the prayer?
Paul hires Michael Brown (Davis) as his attorney, and he might just be successful in helping young Paul, if he can stay away from gambling away the remainder of his money. We learn a secret about Paul’s childhood during the court proceedings. Corbin Bernsen is excellent as the opposing attorney who contends that Paul never should have prayed with the student. Paul sticks to his guns and continues to pray, even when everything goes wrong around him. Will his perseverance pay off in the end?
The conclusion is satisfying and shows that people can change. We are pleased to award this dramatic and gripping movie our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12-plus.
